Joy in Growing Older
“Life is passing by for all of us. Billy Graham was once asked what the greatest surprise of his life had been. His answer was, ‘The brevity of it ’
Here’s what it comes down to. If you have placed your faith and trust in Jesus Christ as Savior, if you belong to Him, then you don’t have to dread the passing of years. As Christians, we know the best is yet to come. As you walk day by day with the Lord, living the way He wants you to live, you will acquire experiences and memories, distilled truth that will be a blessing to you and others later in life, because you made the right choices and invested in the right things.
If you have put your faith in Jesus Christ, you need to know that He is with you right now, bringing His limitless power to bear on the details of your everyday life. His touch changes everything. And down the road? Well, there’s nothing to stress about in our futureneither old age nor death nor the fresh new life that awaits just around the corner.”
